A programme relayed from Egypt, consisting of Oriental music ancient and modern, and a glimpse of the street life of Cairo today
A Reading from the Koran by SHEIKH MOHAMMED RIFAAT
Sheikh Mohammed Rifaat has become famous throughout the Arabic Mohammedan world through his broadcasts of the Koran. These are more eagerly listened to than any other item in the programmes. He has the ideal voice for Oriental broadcasting. He is totally blind.
MUSTAFA BEY RIDA AND HIS ORIENTAL
TAKHT
Mustafa Bey Rida (Kanoun) Riad el Sonbati (Oud) Sami Shawa (Violin) Guirguis Said (Nai)
Mustafa el Akkad (Rek)
Mustafa Bey Rida is life President of the Royal Institute of Oriental Music, and Adviser on Oriental Music to the Egyptian State Broadcasting Service. He is reputed to be the finest Kanoun player in the world.
The word ' takht' originally meant a group of instruments assisting the singer, but has now come to mean the instrumentalists and ' assistant ' singers. Every well-known singer has his own permanent takht.
The Kanoun is a harp-shaped instrument with eighty-three strings. The Oud, traditional emblem of Oriental music, looks like a mandola. Riad el Sonbati, still under thirty, is acknowledged by many as being its greatest living player. The Nai is a reed instrument and the most ancient of the instruments. Guirgis Said was a pupil of the late Bizari, the world's greatest nai player. The Rek is an Oriental tambourine, and Mustafa el Akkad is its leading player at the Royal Institute of Oriental Music. His Oriental Orchestra is often heard in Egyptian programmes.
MIZMAR and TABL BALADI

Street Scenes in Cairo
An actual relay from the heart of Cairo, the Avenue Fuad and the Opera Square, the Banks of the Nile and the Bazaars, the Muezzin calling the faithful to prayer
The music of the Mizmar and Tabl Baladi is played in every town and village of the Delta and the Nile-the truest Egyptian music that exists today, going back, it is said, to Pharaonic times.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An Appeal on behalf of THE GENERAL LYING-IN HOSPITAL, LAMBETH, by the Rt. Hon. Sir JOHN SIMON , G.C.S.I.,
K.C.V.O.
For one hundred and seventy years, the General Lying-in-Hospital, known to thousands as ' The G.L.I.', has ministered to poor mothers and their babies either at the hospital or in their own homes by providing them with the best of medical and nursing attention at a time which is, perhaps, the most critical in a woman's life. During the last ten years over 21,000 mothers have been attended.
It was at this hospital that Lister, then its honorary surgeon, worked out the application of his antiseptic principles to maternity cases.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
